Laumeier offers one-week Summer Art Camps in half-day morning sessions for ages 4 to 6 and full-day sessions for ages 6 to 15. Campers (divided into groups by age) experiment with a variety of art media and processes, explore new ideas and create amazing works of art! Participants learn about art, artists and art history; explore the Park grounds and woodland trails; and find inspiration in Laumeier’s artworks for drawing, painting, sculpting and more!

Summer Art Camps are taught by local, experienced Artist-Instructors and are structured to encourage artistic development and self-expression through social interaction and individual skill-building experiences. All materials are provided, and each camper receives an exclusive Art Camp t-shirt.
